Merry Christmas to all my blog readers

Merry Christmas - Comments and Graphics!




Quebec for a check-up

I'm preparing all my stuff to go to Quebec this night ; there, I will have tests for my eye after 3 injections treatments...

So I will be back on Thursday.... again 1600 kms... a long trip, for I hope, good results.

I'm more afraid of all tests than the injection... could you believe it..

Elaine Princess is gone




I have to tell the story of Elaine; Elaine is a great and nice lady who is teaching me crochet in Portuguese ; she has a blog and there, I could follow and learn the technical words.


However, Life decided something very difficult for her ; her daughter, her Princess as she called her, passed away last week ; the Princess would be 12 in January, but at 4 years old, the doctors found a cerebral tumor ; the courageous Princess had 10 surgeries and her last moments have been very difficult for her and her family.

Here is the blog link of Elaine : http://elainecroche.blogspot.com/

Here I have a picture of Elaine and her little Princess
